Cheek Augmentation Procedure
Cheek augmentation with fillers can give individuals fuller facial features if the face looks tired or gaunt. It can also restore the youthful appearance and rejuvenate the mid-face region. A variety of dermal fillers may be used during treatment such as a fast acting hyaluronic acid based injectable that will slowly be dissolved naturally into the body, or a collagen stimulator that will not only provide a temporary boost in plumpness, but also encourage the body to produce more collagen and allowing for improvement in fullness over time. Dermal fillers are a good alternative for patients who desire more definition in their cheeks but are not willing or able to undergo an invasive surgical treatment with implants or fat transfer.
Our expert injections and cosmetic consultant will perform a consultation with each patient to determine the concerns and decide on the placement of the filler. Following the treatment, a thorough aftercare instruction guide will be provided by our patient care team. In general, no rubbing, touching, or massaging treated areas will help the filler stay in place as the area recover over the next few days. The goal of cheek augmentation with filler is to increase volume in the cheeks and contour the face to create a younger, more rejuvenated appearance.
